2019—Fueling Stop

Welcome to Magee Marsh on the western basin of Lake Erie. The marsh provides the perfect stopping grounds for warblers and other songbirds as they migrate north to their breeding grounds. In late April and into May, these birds “pile in” to the forested beach ridges that comprise Magee Marsh and rest and refuel to regain energy for their final push across Lake Erie. The area is the perfect site to view many migrating warbler species for a brief few weeks in the spring.

This is a male Yellow Warbler. Photographed with Nikon D500, Nikon 1.4 TC, 500mm PF lens. Hand held.
